I knew I was going to get into some rainy weather while out running errands this afternoon. I decided to head over to the Mississippi River for a quick look see. As I approach the Louisiana Circle the bottom fell out. As you can see from the photos the bridges gradually disappeared during the torrential downpour. You could not see the bridges at all. I had to keep rolling my window down to get the effect. Thank goodness I have leather seats. First time I have ever taken pictures like this at the circle and thought it turned out to be a rather cool disappearing effect.
A Dixie Lady Deer Hunter

Bob Phillips came up the other day with a photo of his wife Marian and a deer she got on Brown's Point New Years Eve. The deer was an 8-point with 16 inches of inside spread that weighed in at 190 pounds. A nice trophy in anyone's book. However, the tale Bob told is that this was Marian's fourth deer this year and he claimed that he would have done better than he did if he had not spent so much time hauling Marian's deer out of the woods. Come off it, Bob. We all know who the hunter was.
